Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Snow Storm

"There's a storm coming..."

The Snow Storm box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the Snow Storm. It also contains a stat card for him/her/them though there are no upgrade cards.

Snow Storm - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it split into two pieces (so it actually fits in the box one presumes) as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of them...

Snow Storm - Stat Card
Wyrd Games didn't like my publishing pictures of both sides of the stat cards so you'll have to make do with this...

Should there be any assembly issues with the model then they will be listed in the appropriate section and you can view larger versions of the smaller pictures or instruction pictures by clicking on them.

Some General Notes on Assembly.
Many of these models contain quite small parts so depending on how dexterous you are you might consider getting yourself some tweezers. Dry-fitting is also always a good idea in case a part needs a tiny bit of extra filing or filling as some of the fits are quite tight. Where the parts on the sprue are quite thin (chains, weapon shafts, cables and the like) then it might be better to remove parts with a sharp scalpel rather than cutters.

Snow Storm - Assembled
The model consists of large easy to assemble pieces though you may need a tiny bit of filing to make the pieces fit flush...or I did at least. The only minor issue I encountered was that the girls cloak seems to be slightly higher than the bottom of the monsters foot when she's fitted flush to his leg leaving a gap underneath so a tiny bit of realignment was needed.

Here's some close-ups...

Snow Storm - Comparison Picture
Here's a couple of comparison pictures between the original metal version and the new M2E plastic one.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

  1. The new pose for Snow Storm is terrific. It's dynamic and uses the space inside the base well. Original Storm was beefier, but I think new Storm is appropriately threatening, and the face looks great.

    The comparison photos are such a nice touch. Thanks for the unboxing as always!
